Commercial Federal Tax Credit – EV Charging Stations
Tax Credits Are Back – Making Charging Stations Even More Affordable
They had expired, but now they’re back… a 30% federal tax credit is available again in the US for EV charging equipment, and can be applied to purchases made in 2015 as well as through the end of the 2016. The DOE’s Alternative Fuels Data Center tracks incentives including those for electric vehicle charging infrastructure on federal, state, utility and municipal bases.
Government and utility incentives can make owning EV charging stations even more rewarding. Check out what grants, rebates and tax credits are available for purchasing and installing stations in your region by clicking the button below.
Businesses that purchase and install electric vehicle charging stations may be eligible for a tax credit of 30% of the qualifying costs, up to $30,000. The credit may be applied toward charging stations installed between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2016. Businesses with multiple sites are allowed to use the credit at each site. Permitting and inspection fees are not qualifying costs. This is a major bonus to businesses looking to upfit their location with more charging stations for their electric fleet. Please refer to the chargepoint website for more information and see if your state qualifies for this incentive.
